Damali Ayo

University of North Carolina Press

damali ayo turns on her recorder as she confronts her interlocutors with performance art. She asks paint store employees to match her brown flesh tone. She sits on the sidewalk and collects reparations for slavery, handing over any contributions from white people to equally surprised black people. As you might imagine, interesting things get said along the way. damali secretly records that dialogue. Producer Dmae Roberts turns those recordings, and damali’s reflections on them, into radio. It’s anything but conventional journalism, but damali firmly believes she’s delivering the news.

Keywords:   non-traditional radio, creative nonfiction radio, performance art, Studio 360
